I loved the effect, and decided to do another, but the unprepossessing template (photo below) caught my eye. It obviously needed something more, so I spent an hour or so adding texture to it - rather challenging given it was already heavily painted.
I noticed, too, that the mask was badly in need of a cleaning, since many of those delightful little brach spaces had accumulated sneaky layers of paint...I could blame it on my students, couldn't I? Oops, there went another hour.
Finishing the new texture necessitated another Gelli printing session, of course. Don't you wonder why, in a studio the size I work in those prints and foam plates are all on the floor?
With mask taped in place over one of the prints, I was ready to roll with layer number two.
Just because I'm on a roll with this mask and these textured prints, I might do another . . . what colour combo do you want to see? And naturally, there are more layers to come on the ones I've already done - when I get back to them!
I hope you're as squirrelly as am I in the studio...it's certainly well worth it for entertainment value.
